    Any distro with good support for 2-in-1 laptops?

    I just got an HP Envy x360 15z-ee100. I wiped Windows and installed Manjaro on it but the screen rotation doesn’t work and there’s no on-screen keyboard, fingerprint sensor also doesn’t work but I’m not concerned with it. WiFi didn’t work at first. I had to USB tether from my phone to get the internet and then install rtw89 driver to get it working.

    Also the stylus doesn’t feel as smooth as it did on Windows. I know most of these stuff aren’t deal breakers but it pains me to see such poor support for convertibles.

      If I have ten different 2-in-1 PCs I will find that just like in Windows I have to deal with the change in hardware as I install Linux, Windows, BSD or other OSes.

      Because I’m not beholden to any distro I tend to try Ubuntu, Mint and others till I’m OK with the stock install.
